Chives cipollina is a well-liked and simple-to-cultivate herb that has slender leaves and gorgeous, globose pink blooms. Chives are also known as garlic chives. Chives have a mild onion taste, which makes them an excellent choice for seasoning salads and dips because of their ability to subtly impart onion flavour. They are also rich in necessary vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin C and iron, making them ingredients that are not only delicious but also nutritious.

Chives can be used to add flavour to a wide variety of foods, from salad to casserole, potatoes to soup.

Continue to cut the leaves and use them so that there will be additional growth.
